Casa Tagumerche

General information

Brief description of organisation

Our mission and values:
- to create an environment and offer the facilities for creative work, integrated with the natural surroundings and community, a place to experience new perspectives.
- to promote international collaboration and networking, to bring together people from all countries.
- to provide and and improve a place where representatives of all disciplines and cultures can leave their usual comfort zone and meet each other as a source of mutual inspiration.
- to embrace and emphasize the experimental, the unsure, the insecure, the undefined and unexpected states of creativity.

We do not insist on a final exhibition at the end of one’s stay, but we would like that participants present a small talk about their work and practice.
We are connected to La Gomera´s wide artists community, so we are happy to introduce participants to local artists and support them for organizing an exhibition.
Participants are also invited and encouraged to leave images or a video presentation or testimonials on Casa Tagumerche´s website or a link to their own website.

Brief description of residency program

Casa Tagumerche is a creative residency designed to support dedicated artists and writers seeking a private space in an spectacular environment to generate new ideas, complete projects, or make artistic connections.

Located in La Gomera´s fantastic landscape between mountains and the Atlantic ocean we provide a house, a separate guest house and a painter´s studio, surrounded by a large garden. With our untreated water, many fruits from the garden and the photovoltaic system we try to keep our ecological footprint on the island as small as possible
